Check out the podcast through the link below...

The themes this week are…

1. Values

2. Reflections

3. Responsibility

…and so it is a new year, 2023. Since I became an astrologer, I’ve reshaped my energetic view of what the New Year means.

What the New Year signifies for me is actually the final act of the current cycle, which will conclude on March 20th when the Sun ends its transit through Pisces, the Final Sign, and moves into Aries, the First Sign.

Currently, the Sun is in Capricorn, which signifies work and responsibility. You are at that point in the energetic cycle where you are being called to put your plan to work.

What have you been working on since March 20th of 2022?

Whatever it is, now is the time to bring that dream, and those plans into reality.

Venus transits into Aquarius on Monday, creating a frequency that supports you to invite those within your community, or group context to assist in bringing your plans into reality.

Who is going to help you carry the load to ascend to your point of achievement?

How are you assisting others in your life, in bringing their goals into reality?

As Mercury and Mars continue their retrograde transits, life may feel a bit slowed down. If you are a feeling like you are working towards your goals, but you are not getting any closer to your goals, these retrograde transits which are pulling you back for the purpose of reflection, review, and reassessment.

What areas of your life do you need to reflect upon, review, or redo, in order to get on track to where you want to be?

Values are a major theme this week, as the Sun and Mercury transiting through Capricorn align with Uranus and the North Node in Taurus. Perhaps one of the reasons life seems to be holding you back from your goals, is that your goals may be out of line with your values. Check in to make sure what you are working towards, and what you are spending your time on is truly reflective of your self-worth.

Finally, there is the Full Moon in Cancer this week. In order to get to where you want to go, you may need to release some baggage from the past. This is what the Full Moon is all about. Use this frequency to let go, and lift up.

If you are curious how these, or any other transits are affecting you directly, I encourage you to reach out to me for a reading.

Wishing you all the best through the week, as you ride the planetary waves!

MONDAY, January 2

Venus in Aquarius

Venus is the planet of love and relationships.

Aquarius is the sign of community, independence, and nonconformity.

The next 24-days is your opportunity to get weird.

This Time: January 2 - 26, 2023 ~ Those who were born with key astrological points in Taurus or Scorpio be mindful that you could experience some challenges in your relationships while Venus transits Aquarius.

The reason why Taurus and Scorpio placements struggle with Aquarius is because they are all Fixed Signs, therefore they make a strong connection. The Elements of Taurus (Earth) and Scorpio (Water) do not mixed with the Element of Aquarius (Air), hence the reason for the tension. If you are interested in learning more about these basic fundamentals of astrology, I encourage you to purpose my book, The Basics of Astrology.

Last Time: March 5 - April 5, 2022 ~ Think back to these dates for clues on what could be in store for you this time around.

The keys to navigating this powerful frequency is to be authentic. Embrace your independence.

If you find yourself slipping into codependent habits, and adjusting yourself for the benefit of others.


Be yourself.

You are more than enough, and if the vibe of one individual conflicts with the energy you are sharing, put a cap on it, and save it to be shared with someone who wants to dance to the music you are playing.

There is so much positivity with this frequency, make sure you are sharing it with those who reflect who you are in the best possible way.

When: January 2 - 6

THURSDAY, January 5

The Sun in Capricorn Trine Uranus Retrograde in Taurus

What makes your values yours, separate from everyone else?

Are the goals you are seeking to accomplish reflective of you, or are they goals that you’ve adopted as your own due to the influence of someone else?

This period of time is pushing you to evaluate your trajectory and determine if your path is aligned with your values.

Focus on what you value, rather than the values of anyone else.

Think about what makes you unique.

What makes you, you.

When you lean into your individuality, the only obstacles that remain in front of you, are your own.

The only person in your way is you, so step aside.

Allow yourself to be the individual that you are, and ascend towards what you want to achieve.

When: January 3 – 7

FRIDAY, January 6

The Full Moon in Cancer

These obstacles that impede your path may stem from your past, your upbringing, the ones who raised and nurtured you, or even your ancestors.

The Full Moon is the release, the exhale, it is showing, or sharing the harvest that was planted during the New Moon phase back on December 23.

The New Moon in Capricorn on December 23 was planting the seeds of achievement, goals, aspirations, and committing to do the work required over the necessary time to bring them to fruition.

Have you reached the goals you set for yourself two weeks ago?

How do you feel about your placement on the path?

Are there any beliefs, thought patterns, or old habits that were adopted during your upbringing, through the ones who raised and nurtured you, or your ancestors, which are potentially holding you back from where you what to be?

One of the themes of the week is reflections, as Mercury and Mars retrograde are directing your attention to the past.

Cancer is ruled by the Moon, so the Full Moon in Cancer brings the Moon to its most powerful position of the Lunar Calendar.

The Moon is Full because it fully reflects the light of the Sun, therefore the light that is emanating off of the Moon is past light, therefore the Moon reflects your past, your upbringing, the ones who raised, and nurtured you, or your ancestors.

What parts of your past, rooted in your present life are preventing you from getting to where you want to go?

If these parts of yourself, which are not serving you, are not of you, meaning they were passed down through a family member, or even an ancestor, release them.

Release whatever is holding you back, and ascend towards your goals.
